Look, in your other thread, you asked "Sedan or HB?" It's actually a good question. In this one, you say you are settling for what they have, not necessarily getting what you want. Not so good.
If waiting 10 days costs $1000 more, but you get what you really want, that is money well spent. Also, I'm certain there is more then one Ford dealer in your part of Texas. Be prepared to walk away and have another dealer earn that $1K. Play them against one another. Make the dealer you eventually take delivery from earn your business!!
It appears that you do not want to wait and order your car. Fine. You may have to be flexible on color, but never settle for what a particular dealer has on his lot. It's January, they all have cars right now.
